R&B icon Usher and his wife and manager, Grace Miguel, have listed their Sunset Strip home for $4,200,000 — and we are very impressed by the couple’s interior design choices.
A black master bedroom, sculptural chandeliers, and green velvet furniture are just a few of the villa’s bold moments, which all contrast beautifully with its more traditional elements, including the original stenciled wood beam ceilings. The restored 1926 Spanish contemporary villa hides behind trees on a private road adjacent to the famed/infamous Chateau Marmont — “If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.”
The 4,261-square-foot home is soaked in California sunshine, including the master bedroom with a large private terrace looking out over the neighborhood. Both the foyer and the master bedroom are painted a matte black, with black curtains, a black staircase, and near-black wooden floors.
Things lighten up in the art-filled master bath, complete with a soaking tub, shower, and his and hers vanities.
The dining room takes a blue graphic print and runs away with it — covering the walls and the curtains for an all-over touch that doesn’t bore. Sculptural pendant lights and chandeliers cast a glow on the home’s many pieces of modern art.
French doors open up to a newly-built patio and plunge pool outside, plus a separate ensuite guest room with a private entrance, which can be used as a home office/studio or a meditation-workout room.
The villa has five bedrooms, six baths, and a theatre/media room. It's also within walking distances of nightlife and, more importantly, taco places.
